Laotian Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith joined talks with his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc in Hanoi on Monday evening, as part of his visit to Vietnam from October 2 to 6, the Vietnam News Agency has reported.

During their meeting, PM Phuc asserted that the Vietnamese Party, government, and people treasure their relationship with Laos, and prioritize the enhancement of the two countries’ traditional friendship and collaboration.

Replying to his host, the Laotian head of government congratulated Vietnam on its achievement and development in recent years, which have raised the country’s status in the international arena.  

The two premiers reviewed the implementation of their cooperation agreements, bilateral investment and trade projects as well as the common goals of both nations.

The two sides agreed to continue high-level exchanges and visits and effectively realize agreements reached by Vietnamese and Laotian leaders made in previous meetings.

The two countries will focus on expediting important projects, including the Laos National Assembly building, which is a gift from Vietnam to Laos, the Hanoi – Vientiane expressway, the Hon La oil and gas bonded warehouse and pipeline in the north-central province of Quang Binh, construction of the Vung Ang Port, as well as several energy and transport projects.

PM Phuc and PM Sisoulith reached consensus on increasing trade turnover between the two countries, providing favorable conditions for Vietnamese businesses to invest in Laos, and boosting cooperation in defense, security, education, and training.
